February Food Challenge week 4: we’ve finished!

Hello March! That means that my February Food Challenge is over! 28 days of different meals to try to tempt the children into trying new flavours. Take a look at week one, week two and week three.
So how did we get on this week?
Day 22: chicken and vegetable pie and chips

Day 23: takeaway night! kebab, pizza and chips


Dy 24: Quorn chunks in veg sauce with pasta
Day 25: cottage pie

Day 26: steak slice, cauliflower cheese, chips, beans (Anya had a sarcastic single chip)

Day 27: scampi, has brown and beans, trifle for pudding!

Day 28: toad in the hole with beans, apple and blackberry pie

Well this week’s major success was scampi! Cottage pie and cauliflower cheese are meals that the children eat one week and hate the next 🙁 We have had a lot of beans this week: I bought salad but the cold weather meant everyone wanted hot food only!
I am really proud of the children for trying different foods over the past 4 weeks and am planning to try a new recipe/food each week to continue to inspire their taste buds.



  1. I love a challenge. I meal plan every week and that gets me quite competitive to try and be better than the week before and ensure I introduce some new foods. It’s so easy to fall into eating the same thing. #SharingtheBlogLove

  2. Well done for keeping this up for 4 weeks Laura this is certainly no mean feat!!! You should definitely be proud…and so should the kids for at least trying. Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub with this xoxo

  3. I go through phases of cooking new things. Then I’ll got through a phase of sticking to the safe options because I’m fed up of the new things being rejected!! What’s been your greatest success – are there any dinners you’d recommend? #coolmumclub

  4. I’m really impressed – I’d love if mine would try this many new things! Cottage pie is a big winner in our house, but he loves my mum’s version better! No idea why, it’s the same! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  5. This has made me so hungry. I love how you’ve gone with traditional food rather than fancy. I really need to try something like this with my own fussy eater! Thanks for sharing at #TriumphantTales.

  6. We used to meal plan with the kids depending on their activities and I always over cooked so I had individual meals I could freeze for when someone had to eat at a different time, it’s hard though trying to find something everyone will eat without just resorting to the same 3-4 dishes on rotation #triumphanttales
